    Life in The Bahamas

    Everyone thinks it's a paradise and yes it is for sum not all. When your born to parents that are not native to the Bahamas you have to wait until you're 18 to apply for citizenship. You would think that after denouncing your citizenship from birth and taking an oath to now be the citizen of new country you'd be proud but there's nothing much to be desired. There's still a stigma dating to your previous nationality and you think one would be allowed the rights of a citizen after being born and raised in a country all of your life well think again. You're not allowed the same jobs as would the children of natives such as jobs relating to government agencies and even jobs where there is a high level of native workers they discriminate no matter how much qualifications one has for any such position desired. Having Bahamian citizenship should be something one should be proud of but there's really no difference between not having it and having it.
